Is anyone using the Sigma 100-400mm lens, or the Tamron equivalent?

Considering one or the other........

Took a trip up to Strasburg, PA. Here are some shots on the Strasburg Railroad featuring Norfolk and Western 4-8-0 No. 475. The Amish/Mennonite landscape is beautiful. The food there is also great. So many buffets and smorgasbords.... !*drool*!

Thank you Boosted! I stayed in Niagara Falls, NY to see the Falls. Since I was so close, I figured I would research some spots in Canada to catch some good rail action.
